About me

About me: I am a sport and exercise science student at Birmingham Universtiy. I really love apllying theoretical knowledge of how the body works to sporting situations. So hope that my tutorials will allow you to enjoy PE in the same way. I have a passion for dance, whilst particpating in classes for over 15 years I have also taught younger pupils. Therefore I have experience teaching and have gained skills such as patience and good communication.  At College I acted as a guide for PE and supported the first years in the lead up to exams by sharing my revision techniques and subject knowledge.  What to expect: I will use a variety of different ways such as diagrams, repition, looking at mark schemes and many more, to ensure that you are condifent in answering any exam question thrown at you.  I want the session to best suit you. It's crucial to me you feel comfortable whilst learning (revision techniques differ for everyone).  Physical Education is so much fun and a lot can be achieved if it is enjoyable. Please ask me any questions, I will be happy to answer!About me: I am a sport and exercise science student at Birmingham Universtiy.

Questions Olivia has answered

How could a coach eliminate aggression in a sporting activity?

A coach could choose to either use cognitive techniques or somaic techniques. Firstly cognitive are pyschological, so are to do with thought process. For example, encouraging positive self talk. So the athlete would endorse their own ability or progess by telling themself to stay calm and in control. They could also be told to count up to ten, or distance themself. A coach may also choose to use somatic techniques. These involve physiological strategies. Such as progressive muscular relaxation. The athlete would increase the tension of the muscles throughout the body and gradually relax each group in turn. This helps relaxtion.

what happens to the respiratory system when you breathe out?

When you exhale, the intercostal muscles relax. The diaphragm also relaxes and the ribs move inwards and downward. There is a decreased volume of the chest so therefore the pressure increases in the lungs. Due to the increased pressure the air is forced out and you exhale. Simply meaning you breathe out.
